Already discussed on FR threads ad nauseum.
Eighty-four ethics charges were filed against Speaker Gingrich during his term, including claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes. Following an investigation by the House Ethics Committee Gingrich was sanctioned US$300,000. Gingrich acknowledged in January 1997 that “In my name and over my signature, inaccurate, incomplete and unreliable statements were given to the committee”.  The House Ethics Committee concluded that inaccurate information supplied to investigators represented “intentional or ... reckless” disregard of House rules. Special Counsel James M. Cole concluded that Gingrich violated federal tax law and had lied to the ethics panel in an effort to force the committee to dismiss the complaint against him. The full committee panel did not agree whether tax law had been violated and left that issue up to the IRS. In 1999, the IRS cleared the organizations connected with the “Renewing American Civilization” courses under investigation for possible tax violations.
Thanks for posting that. It is very instructive that some FReepers trust Nanzi Pelozi more than they trust Newt Gingrich. It’s all I ever need to know about them.
The tax charges are the only ones that are not still an issue. Newt will withdraw before he lets the real dirt out in the air. The only question is whether Nanzi is ready to retire so that she can divulge what she knows.
